Dogs in training for charity walk

PUBLISHED: 13:00 29 January 2011


MARCHING mongrels and pacing pedigrees will be seen on Weston’s beach next week.

Dogs and their owners will be taking part in the Save our Strays Sponsored Dog Walk on February 12.

This is the third event of its kind and is being organised by Whitehouse Kennels and Cattery in Lympsham.

It raises money for different animal charities and also for breast cancer research at Weston General Hospital.

People who take part in the walk can choose any animal charity they want to support – and organisers are hoping to beat the £2,400 raised last year.

Cash in aid of SOS will go directly into the Brian King Memorial Fund, which pays for veterinary treatment for stray animals at the kennels and cattery.

The walk begins at Uphill beach at 1pm and registration, which begins at 12noon, is free for people who have raised sponsorship of £10 or more, or £3 for others.

People can register by visiting and downloading a form, calling 01934 750352 or e-mailing
